27) A Small Diter-Rotikon
One that slipped my attention: an essay on Dieter Roth, his poetry and imagery, his poetry (some of which is translated for the first time into English),
his apparent solipsism and longing for the horizon of the world and of perception, his homunculism and much, much more.
20 pages with several illuminating reproductions, illustrated discreetly by the author.

- € 14. Worth it alone for the cover
A a series of faux philosophical speculations on that hoary old anomaly that mirrors can invert laterally, but not vertically, extended to questions of space in general,
but taking its visual stimulus from the likes of Martin Sharp: eye-blistering psychedelia used to distract from linear arguments in line with Georges Bataille, so I am told.
48 A4 pages plus a fold-out poster cover make this a highly attractive proposition at € 90 (signed and numbered edtiion of 20). Printed in high gloss, 160 g top paper,
published in Lower Mustang, 2010

of Africa. 80 euros, glassine cover.
31) m-maybe m-maybe (a girl’s picture)
An homage (also in its appropriativeness) to Roy Lichtenstein and a bold look at the effect he has exerted on the Internet, unwittingly producing texts of great sexual
candour and daring which the author bravely trawled through and collected from Google one weekend in 2010 before adding his own variations on one of Roy’s
21 x 21 cm on 160 g paper, edition of 100 signed and numbered and printed in Botswana but available here via the Internet or the usual channels.
Plain wraps in glassine, price 30 euros, most reasonable for over 40 pages like this:
32) Lie or Die
Yet another homage to an artist, this time Bruce Naumann - “a sage response to his litho Live or Die [that] defies the narrow predictability of
Naumann’s alternatives in the ltters of the original. A riddle, or just drivel?”

- 32) Hamlet & The Purple Sea of Blood
DVD of the eponymous film featuring purple blood and purple prose and some extraordinary epigonal music by the author on the synthesiser. With a picture essay of the author

33) Blots on My Scutcheon
The Kleksograph (as Swabian Romantic Justinus Kerner called it) or plain old ink blot (France’s own Victor Hugo) taken to new lengths

kind of books you find at a book fair like this” - ‘twas at the Small Press fair in London.

- 36) Kniedagewesenes

Again, two titles available only from Boekie Woekie and a few select shops, Dieter’s classic Radio Sonate broadcast of him playing the piano and
talking about anything that would hepl him get through the 50 minutes he had to play, as a CD with the full text in English and German, and
the DVD, greatly improved on the VHS, of Dieter’s last reading which took play in Heidelberg. These I have included here simply because I was
involved in both publications (as editor and author and translator) AND want to recommend them most highly. Price € 32 & 38 respectively.
- 40) Negative World
For the sake of semi-completeness, this little pocket book is merely advertising for my art production, it doesn’t even cost anything if I like you
or if you buy a couple of things from this site, it will probably be a bit battered, but it’s pretty:
Price for people I don’t like and who don’t buy anything else: € 30
- 41) A Nude Model of the Universe
The famous supressed book, 44 pages of speculation by one Rosie Dubrie (as in a piece of cheese, and not ‘doobrie’, as my friend Alastair Brotchie thought) on the nature of consciousness and filthy pictures in an abject state subsequent to
self-abuse (not me, honest govenor!) 25 x 18 cm, 160 g paper, full colour illustrations, glassine wrapped print by M. Green,
